Just before sunrise today, backdropped by a blue sky, I  watched a 15-minute show from my bedroom window. A chaotic wind sent small snowflakes twisting and turning through the air. Running back and forth as though they couldn’t make up their minds which way to go.

Right now the sky is blue, the sun is up, the stiff wind has shifted to the west, powder snow is resting on the ground and we have a chill factor in the single digits. A good day to stay inside with a hot cup of tea.
